Risings costs of gas, coal and oil have driven up the costs associated with providing heat and hot water to homes throughout the country. As a result, customers have been forced to look into alternative methods of heating their homes. Renewable solutions, such as heat pumps, are an excellent way to reduce the running costs of a home, reduce carbon footprint and generate profitable income.
Heat pumps upgrade heat energy stored in the ground (ground source heat pumps) or air (air source heat pumps) into the heat energy used in domestic heating and hot water systems. Heat pump solutions are capable of providing 100 percent of domestic space heating and hot water demand.
There are several key reasons why heat pumps are suited to domestic installations.
By replacing energy demand from the grid, via tradition heating methods, with free, green heat energy from a heat pump, bills can be slashed by betwee 0 percent. depending on the existing heating system.
The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
The Renewable Heat Incentive is a government-led scheme that was set up to incentivise the uptake of domestic and commercial scale renewable heating technologies. The renewable Heat Incentive, in effect, pays customers a set rate per kilowatt hour of heat energy generated by their system. These payments are guaranteed for seven years under the Domestic RHI scheme, with payments made quarterly.
By replacing generation from harmful fossil fuels by free, clean renewable energy, the impact of a household’s heat consumption can be significantly reduced. Typical air or ground source heat pump installations con reduce household carbon emissions by up to 50 percent.
Other advantages of heat pump installation
+ Air source heat pumps are ideally situated for installation next to domestic properties
+ systems with varying outputs available to cover large and small heat demands
+ Heat pump systems run with relatively low noise outputs, with Quiet Mark Approval
